Brief Bio

War & board gamer. I used to play a lot of miniature wargaming, mainly DBA but the painting got too much for my aged eyes blush

Mainly play quick & easy games with the family such as these below, especially on holidays when there is no escape (for them!)

My son and I also enjoy

and I enjoy solo games of:

I like to indulge my passion for wargames when I get the time. I started back in the seventies with SPI & Avalon Hill titles (I still have Squad Leader to this day).

Due to lack of opponents most of my wargaming is done solo, which is OK as I can play at my own pace. I tend to favor games I can set-up quickly such as Up Front, Leningrad, C&C Ancients, Clash of Giants etc. Like many wargamers I have several many titles that have yet to reach the table!

I really enjoy playing with a number of opponents on Vassal - Clash of Giants II, Men of Iron, C&C Napoleonics, Guilford, Monmouth, Twilight Struggle & Mr Madison's War have had an outing so far!

Some time ago I managed to get a copy of Up Front which has turned into one of my all time favourite games, even playing solo; I am keen to play FTF so I'm hoping the Kickstarter reissue will produce some local players later this year or next year?!?!

I am really enjoying some of the stuff I have managed to acquire over the last few years such as:

These have really helped me get back into playing rather than buying and storing in the cupboard

I also discovered on BGG

which is a cracking Dr Who solitare paragraph adventure game.

Family wise, I have a wife of 31 years (the marriage that is!!) and a grown up son and daughter, all of whom are kind enough to play games with me, so long as they don't need a lot of explaining
